Timetable: Pere Marquette - Traverse City Sub - Baldwin to Traverse City

This was the original C&WM main line north to Traverse City. After the Manistee & Northeastern came under PM control, passenger and many freight trains were routed through Manistee (via Walhalla) and this line was reduced to a minor branch line and then abandoned between Baldwin and Kaleva in favor of the M&NE route. One reason for the abandonment was High Bridge north of Baldwin which needed to be rebuilt. Station times and siding capacity in 1949.
